The Freshwater Asian Gold Clam are a great unusual and entertaining addition to your aquarium.
Gold Clam are a natural filter feeder that helps keep aquarium water clear and clean by removing uneaten food and waste from the aquarium. They also help maintain water quality and lower nitrate levels naturally.

Species name: Corbicula fluminea

Common name: Golden Clam, Golden Freshwater Clam, Asian Clam, Asiatic Clam, Good Luck Clam, Prosperity Clam

Family: Corbiculidae

Order: Veneroida

Class: Bivalvia

Maximum size: 2 inches (larger than a nickel but small than a half dollar)

Coloration: Light gold-brown with darker brown streaks throughout. The shell if scratched and peeled will show a white flaky coloration underneath. The inside of the shells often show a slight purple tint to them.

Origin: Naturally occurring in Eastern and Southeastern Asia. Found in Japan, Korea, China, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, and even in parts of Eastern Russia. They are an invasive species and have been introduced in Northern America and Europe.

Company: Most fish can be kept with the clam as it is not carnivorous and will not cause harm to the fish. It is best not kept with any large, aggressive, or carnivorous fish. Crayfish, crabs, most loaches, and pufferfish will also attack the clam.

Water parameters: Temperature can vary 64-82 but keeping towards higher temperatures will increase life span, pH 7.2-8.4. Stable levels of ammonia and nitrite at zero are best. Since they are filter feeders and eat particles from the water they are not tolerant to any ammonia or nitrite as almost all invertebrates are not.

Aquarium setup: A nice and soft sandy bottom or very small gravel substrate is recommended as they are partial burrowers. They can be kept in almost any type of setting with or without plants. For general aquarium settings allow the clam around an 6-8 inch square for themselves.

Feeding: You don’t have to actually feed this clam anything. This clam is a microfilter feeder and will filter out debris in the water. Crushed clam pellets or shrimp pellets can be used. They will filter particles out of the water though so they pellets would need to be crushed finely.
